Yea true that on the TLC. You know somethings wrong when the spring at rest is still bent the wrong way I should've crawled under the 66 1100 4x4 project truck at IHPA when I was there last. I'll be going back there anyways might as well take some pics of whats under it.

Spring packs are done, pulled the wedges, then dug into this, let me know your thoughts on it. A permanent fix will have to wait, I need it back together by tomorow.

Another odd thing I noticed, the diference between the bump stops(see pics) and also with the springs hanging, distance between top of the top leaf and the bottom of the frame is aprox 1" bigger passenger side vs driver side. In another note, the shocks in front arent long enough, I had to lift the axle and compres the spring slightly to unbolt it. I have measurements for new shocks, around 23" open, roughly guesstimating 13" closed. Any good ones out there? I can get slightly used Billsteins out of an army suplus ware house for $30 per unit, but Im not 100% on if they will have the size I need.

Alright, with hunting season drawing to a close I will have more time to work on the beast. Theres things I need in parts: tie-rod ends atleast, shocks(will look for input in suspension tech), drag link joints.
I get how bump steer works geometrically since I basically simulated it lowering the axle(steers left because of pull) maybe a conversion is in order. The bottom three leafs were right side up, but the ordering was backwards. When I held it up to the top two leafs it fit the arch perfectly, when I put it back the right way i had to compress the spring leafs together about an 1.5" with a c-clamp so maybe the front will be stiffer and not be as prone to veering off on uneven ground at slower speeds. There were two problems I found In the adventure, one was the missing drum screws in the first pic(sory the pic isnt that great, all 3 missing on that side), the other was finding out why the passenger Ubolt setup was so janky, I put it back temporary, but I dont really know what to make of it. There was a small piece in this hole, not sure how its supposed to be.

Just to be clear, you do know that the leaf order in this photo is basakwards.

http://forums.ihpartsamerica.com/att...7&d=1540061556

The order is from the main leaf to the surface where it clamps to the axle, longest leaf to the shortest where the shortest leaf seats on the axle

Yes that was on the way apart. If you look close to 12oclock on the drum there is a screw missing. If youre super observent, youl notice that on top of my floor jack is another bottle jack since the floor jack decided to bleed out randomly while i was removing a wheel. Here is the front end now.

I always figure its better to state the obvious and hope it is not taken wrong than to not and risk an unsafe situation. Im glad you were going to fix her up right. 👍

Yea. Lol in fact that was the whole reason why i removed the front end in the first place. There is still the consumable parts to replace, I have an old stabilizer that still seems ok Im going to put on, and im not sure if i should replace the tie rod, but its definatly bent. Then there is the pass spring bolt up. Im not sure but the flange on the axle for the front inside bolt looks screwed up.
